Steak, Roasted Potatoes & Green Beans
This is one of my favorite post workout dinners because it's quick, easy and rich in proteins. After training, you need to build and repair muscle with protein and increase complex carbs to help replenish the glycogen levels in your muscles and liver. Remember: eating the right nutrients and quantities after training helps decrease muscle protein breakdown, helps increase muscle synthesis, and restores glycogen stores to enhance your recovery.
• 250 grams of entrecôte steak
• 2 medium sized potatoes
• 5 medium sized brown mushrooms, sliced
• 200 grams of green beans
• 3 tbs of olive oil
• Salt & pepper to season
• Garlic clove, crushed
• Pinch of paprika
• Pinch of thyme
Chop the 2 medium sized potatoes into cubes and arrange them flat in a pyrex dish. Toss a tablespoon of olive oil, black pepper, and a bit of paprika over the cubes and roast in the oven for around 30 minutes at 180C. Toss them around every 10 minutes so they’re brown evenly.
Cut the ends of the green beans and boil them for about 12 minutes until they soften then panfry with some garlic, salt and pepper for 10 minutes.
Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a pan on medium heat , then add the sliced mushrooms for a few minutes. Add the steak to the pan when it’s really hot, fry for 3 minutes then flip it on the other side for another 3 minutes. Depending on how you like your steak cooked, you can keep it more minutes in each side. Rare to medium rare is about 2 to 3.5 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and wrap in aluminium foil to maintain its heat and let it rest in its juice. Serve with the beans and potatoes.
